A hook-and-loop closure means it will be easy to put on and take off so there's no fuss.

Our Favourite Merrell Shoe!

Absolutely love these shoes! We have them in four different sizes as they are the ones that hold up best during the summer and that our son has no problem wearing all day. They stay on well and are easy to get on and off for little hands just learning to put on shoes. Highly recommend!

Great shoe!

Great summer shoe. I love how flexible the sole is and it has such a wide toe box.

Favorite Shoe

We got a pair of the blue and orange ones in a Stitch Fix box. My son wore them nonstop and won’t wear anything other kind of shoe. We were able to compromise and get him to wear another color, thanks to the availability on this website. They’re so durable outside of water and easy to clean.

Best water shoe/sandal combo

We loved this water show/sandals for our twins last year when they were one and w will be buying new pairs again for this summer! Love that they are quick drying so kids can wear them into water and not worry about having soggy feet because they dry really quick! Also love the traction on them, we used them at GWL in the water park area too so nobody was slipping while running.

Blisters and don’t dry quickly

I bought these last year and they weren’t the best water shoes. They took forever to dry and caused blisters on my kids’ feet.

Barefoot success

My 2 year old who insists on being barefoot will only wear and keep these shoes on. He loves these with his wide and chunky feet.

Ideal kids shoes

I find it utterly baffling that merrell doesn’t make baresteps shoes past size little kids 10. I first purchased these 3-4 years ago for my now 8 year in size 10 and they were too small much to my disappointment. They are well made, flexible soles , wide toe box for a natural foot shape, easy to put on. Literally everything you look for in kids shoes. I just bought a pair in size 6 for my 17 month old and they immediately become his favorite over his soft sole moccasins. I think the sizing should be expanded to at least big kids size 2 if not size 4. That said I’ve been waiting years for that to happen to no avail so don’t hold your breath!

Heel/back of shoes are not soft for little feet.

Bought 2 pairs of these a little over a month ago. My twins finally had a chance to wear them to the park yesterday and both ended up with blisters and raw spots on backs of their feet. (Just above the heel). The shoes fit fine, it’s just the backs of the shoes are very hard. I thought so before I let them wear these, and wished I had listened to my gut and sent them back before I ever let them wear these. Now I am stuck with them. Do not recommend because the back of the shoes are not soft at all. Especially for little toddler feet.
